Leader of the contemporary art scene, 20th Biennale of Sydney
In 1973, the Biennale of Sydney started as an event additional to the opening of the Sydney Opera House, one of the symbols of Australia, starting as a biennale for Asian regions with the support by founder Franco Belgiorno-Nettis and Transfield Holdings.
Marking its 20th anniversary, the Biennale of Sydney, the largest and the most interesting contemporary visual art festival being held in Australia, has emerged as a landmark of the country after the Opera House. The Biennale of Sydney gets abreast of the Venice Biennale, the São Paulo Art Biennial, and the Kassel documenta as one of the oldest art biennales, having presented about 1,600 artists from more than 100 countries so far. As one of the leading art festivals, it willingly continues to take the role of introducing the freshest and the most outstanding arts of Australia and other countries in the world.
